A | Things to do in Duluth, Georgia with teens and grandparents
June, Are you looking to stay in Duluth or would you venture out a bit? The Gwinnett Center in Duluth has some great shows that might appeal to both teens and grandparents. See what is playing while you are here. The Gwinnet Braves is an AAA farm team for the Atlanta ball club. The stadium feels like the big leagues, but allows you to be closer to the action.
Andretti Indoor Karting and Games is nearby and offers an arcade and go-Kart racing. Depending on when you go, you can see the real thing at Road Atlanta, recognized as one the world’s best road courses in the country, they host professional and amateur sports car and motorcycle races, and racing and driving schools.
For something a bit lower key, venture about an hour northwest to Dahlonega, Georgia. Dahlonega is the site of the country’s first gold rush. In addition to panning for gold, enjoy hiking to the seven waterfalls in the area. From April through early October you can enjoy the Appalachian Jam on the Dahlonega square where musicians set up on Saturday to jam from 2 – 5 pm.
